Waverider was a member of the Justice League after the Thanagarian invasion.


He was present at Superman's speech to the newly expanded Justice League. He was suspiciously looking at other Leaguers, most notably Atom-Smasher.[1]

Waverider often worked from the Watchtower, where he had been seen eating in the cafeteria.[2]

He was also present at Superman's announcement of the Justice League's second reformation and the planned Metro Tower.[3]

Background information[]

  • Though this character's name is not mentioned on screen, he bears physical likeliness to the DC Comics version of Waverider. However, a Mattel JLU action figure three-pack confirmed the figure and character's name is Waverider.
  • The DC Comics version of Waverider was Matthew Ryder, a human scientist from the year 2030. He was fused into the time-stream in order to go back in time and prevent a hero from becoming the evil Monarch, who ruled the world of 2030.
